I feel like Oath 4 would have preferred having Null Panic on it instead of Rouse 4 having it, since triggering Oath 4 is more likely to get you Panicked. But then maybe that would have been a little TOO good...

Hm... That would make more sense. It would be better, but I do not think it would be too good. Null Panic is nice for the nuke's first round of combat, but after the first round of combat, all the penalties get cleared.

  • Nifl, instead of inflicting Flash on the enemy, just has a full Wind/Watersweep effect. Along with full NFU and the standard stat boost. Also slaying. I feel like she has even less reason for running Domain of Ice than her base form, but whatever it works still.

I think this one works better with Save tanks, since she does not have to worry about getting herself killed on player phase. For her regular version, she can apply Flash so the whole team can Firesweep, but it is more risky to do so since she can be counter killed, and Save tanks often might not be able to take full advantage of Flash anyways due to their low mobility and crappy player phase.

That's still better than Rouse 4 giving it to completely alone units, who don't need to worry about Sudden Panic effects.
I guess there is always still Panic Smoke and other effects that inflict Panic, but Sudden Panic being the easiest to inflict en masse gives Oath more reason to want to be packing it over Rouse, even if yes it'd only be in effect for one round of combat (Panic Smoke and other effects notwithstanding)

I'm pretty sure you're talking about the Water Effects or the Roses. I don't see any Thorr had any floats like Edelgard or Xander had. I did watch both the trailers that they were kept the same as it is.

Them being the same between versions doesn't change the fact that someone clearly told the artist to cover it up.

Though the funny thing is that, based on the datamined art, this is only for the YouTube video, and the art in game is not covered up. So someone had to tell the artist to add the random objects just for the YouTube video. And it's not just the random objects in front of Thorr's cleavage. It appears to be all of the random objects entirely that are only for the YouTube video (all of the water in the idle art and all of the orchids in the attacking art except for the ones that are normally around Thorr's waist).

Also, those are orchids.

All the more reason to pull for and run Ashera.

 

 

Also, since I mentioned the art that hasn't been released yet,

Spoiler

Nifl's damaged art is really adorable. She's pouting with an empty bowl of shaved ice on her head.

 

EDIT: The Tempest Trials announcement is up on the in-game board, so I've added the translation notes for Seth's weapon:

Seahorse Axe is "竜の落とし子の斧" (tatsu-no-otoshi-go no ono), "Seahorse Axe". The word for "seahorse", "竜の落とし子" (tatsu-no-otoshi-go), more commonly written entirely in kana as with other undomesticated animals as "タツノオトシゴ" or "たつのおとしご", literally means "the illegitimate child of dragons".

Can I say that I find it funny that just a few months ago someone noted that it was strange how we never really get lords on summer banners (just a couple in 4 years: Corrin and Lyn) since they are the most popular and you would expect IS to give them the most popular seasonal theme.

And this year we get 5 lords all at once (Dimi, Edel, Claude, Micaiah and Eirika) and even a sixth one if you count Elincia. LMAO

Talk about overcorrecrting.

Anyway I have to spark this banner since I really like OCs, Loki f*cking winks at me (my heart) and Nifl looks really adorable.

Whew what a banner... I'm not upset with myself for not waiting like last year, but it would be nice to summon on this banner. I don't really have the orbs, and there are a bunch of banners coming in August. Hopefully they don't screw up the Double Special when Thorr reruns, like they're doing with pushing Azura so that she's on the Sonia banner.

Thorr and Loki, there's flowers covering some part of them and a water splash for another pose.

Well, I called Nifl, but am disappointed we didn't get Muspell too. His being all enthused about the heat and stuff would have made for a fun counter to Nifl being irritated by it. Also, I don't know if it's just me but Eirika's sheer swimsuit is kind of making me uncomfortable...as well as Thor's awkward sensoring. Lyon being the demote was just so painfully obvious, too. (His "Look! A fish! =D" was absolutely adorable, though, and I love the detail about his foe in that clip actually wielding a fish. XD) Glad Seth's free. I feel a bit bad for Summer Innes, though. He's still waiting for that beachside competition with Ephraim.

Personally, I tend to have weird luck with focus 4*'s. Like, I either pull them as 5* units or not at all, it seems. Maybe it'll be different this time, but I may aim for Nifl and just pick up red nodes as I go. That, or I'll skip this banner and try to aim for my Axe Valor. We'll see how it goes.

As someone who actually likes Eirika ... why. She has five alts, give someone else one already.

I'm in the same boat. I'm very happy that IS considers her profitable, but at the same time I don't want her to get oversaturated either. I didn't expect this to be a SS banner at all though; from the thumbnail and first unit I thought it was an OC only* banner, but as soon as her silhouette appeared I did a double take, and there she was! I didn't expect Wada Sachiko to stay on as her artist though. I really like that they gave her a Flier version of her Prf skill too, and needless to say she's who I'll be gunning for (though a surprise Lyon would be appreciated too).

If they were determined to make this half Sacred Stones, why not Ephraim?

The lack of Ephraim (even as the TT reward) is weird, but I do appreciate that they threw Lyon a bone instead. It's going to be adorable seeing them interact here (at least I hope so). I mean both of their artworks are already super wholesome/ cutesy, so~

* I forgot the Book IV summer banner was half-FE1.

Also, Nifl being here completely blindsided me and her inclusion is so confusing yet hilarious given her whole "no emotions" thing.

For some reason, FE8 seems to get quite a bit of summer representation. (Innes, Tana, Selene, Joshua, Lute, etc.) For a while, it was sort of "FE8's seasonals" (at least, it got to the point where FE8 being on a summer banner was something I just expected.)

It's not like she has no emotions, though. She's just the sort to limit her relationships, intensifying both amity and enmity.

Character introductions are up. Thorr and Loki's art is now up in all its uncensored not-safe-for-YouTube (NSFYT?) glory.

That aside, Nifl is cute.

That is... a hell of an inheritable weapon. I mean, woah, a guarantee follow up attack?? Did we have anything like this already?

 

 I'm salty as fuck because I didn't get any focus unit on the 3H summer banner yet except for a 4* Claude (AND I ALREADY SUMMONED MORE THAN 40 TIMES I WISH I COULD JUST BUY FEH PASS) so I was really hoping that this banner would be bad so I could keep focus just on getting S!Edelgard and S!Dimitri but yeah... I was wrong. While this banner is not at the same level as the other (probably no one was expecting to be anyway, the other one was CRAZY), its still pretty good.

 

 When I saw the silhouettes I was pretty sure that they were Nifl and Fjorm, but thank god it's not Fjorm, I can't take her anymore, at least for a while...(I'm pretty sure that they'll get a duo someday though, I just hope that not too soon) I'm kinda sad that we didn't get Muspell though it would be fun if he had a melting ice cream and was teasing Nifl for not liking to go to the beach while he does (or if he kept complaining that going to the beach is stupid and that he only likes that it's hot but be obviously enjoying). Speaking of S!Nifl, I absolutely loved her, her clothes, her quotes, the whole idea, its awesome! it makes me less sad that we didn't get S!Muspell cause now I'm hoping him to get a winter alt. Also yay! we got our third cav.dragon, and now it's colorless!

 

 What made me the happiest here though was the Thórr/Loki duo, if it was just Loki I wouldn't care but I ABSOLUTEY LOVE THÓRR! And for some reason having her in a duo with Loki makes it better even if I don't care about Loki alone. I knew that these two would get an alt someday (and I was really looking forward to it, since when I saw a fanart of a new year banner concept for duo of them, and also that anniversary art of the two of them in fancy clothing by Maeshima Shigeki, its awesome!). Idk whay though but I'm kinda surprised that their duo happened to be a summer alt, but at the same time I liked it at lot, the ukulele and the fan look so fancy compared to some units that usually have stuff like floaties (I like the floaties and this kind of thing don't get me wrong, but I think that what they did suited Thórr and Loki more) and boom! I'ts drawn by maeshima shigeki! The unit is good, the art is awesome, they get worldbreaker, this gotta be a dream! I saw the trailer yesterday when I was scalding under the sun, dying on my way to do an exam and knowing I wasn't going to go back home for 7 hours, and I freaked out when I saw the duo, it really gave a little joy to go through that ass of a day. I'm just a little disapointed that they're going to be a flying blue tome but eh... Thats a minor problem, I'll get them anyway. Actually maybe this is good, I don't think I have any good flying blue tome...

 

It's sad for my orbs but I'll try to get a copy of the duo and one of Nifl. Then I'm done, because I still need S!Edelgard, S!Dimitri and to start saving for the CYL

 

Also, last but not least, I'm really starting to get pissed that this game is around for 6 years and no one had a volley ball yet on a summer banner. Thats just outrageous, how can they think of giving corals and fish before giving someone a volley ball????

Okay, that story was just so cute. And the metaphor of the sandcastle for the friendship between Eirika, Lyon, and Ephraim was heartrending. Man, that was a good, well-written bit there.

Fuck. I just realized that Exposure is going to absolutely destroy my Aether Raids offense teams, as if Brave weapons didn't already cause them enough trouble.

Valentine Robin ties with Mila for the slowest unit on my Light team (when Eir, Freyja, or Dagr is the bonus unit), and Valentine Gustav ties with Thorr for the slowest unit on my Astra team (when anyone other than Plumeria is the bonus unit). Both of those could be fixed with merges (Robin needs 1 merge to break the tie, and Gustav needs 2), but Robin isn't getting a banner until presumably next month's Double Special Heroes banner, and Gustav isn't getting another banner until next year.

I could alternatively give Gustav summoner support for the time being, but Robin will have to wait for a merge since she already has summoner support.

This sucks.
